Colombus

When a renowned architecture scholar falls suddenly ill during a speaking tour, his son Jin finds himself stranded in Colombus, Indiana – a small Midwestern city celebrated for its many significant modernist buildings. Jin strikes up a friendship with Casey, a young architecture enthusiast who works at the local library. As their intimacy develops, Jin and Casey explore both the town and their conflicted emotions: Jin’s estranged relationship with his father, and Casey’s reluctance to leave Columbus and her mother.

With its naturalistic rhythms and empathy for the complexities of families, debut director Kogonada’s Colombus unfolds as a gently drifting, deeply absorbing conversation. With strong supporting turns from Parker Posey, Rory Culkin, and Michelle Forbes, Colombus is also a showcase for its director’s striking eye for the way physical space can affect emotions.

Kevin Roche: The quiet Architect

He has reached the pinnacle of his career, but is not interested in fame and recognition. His works are renowned and includes Oakland Museum of California, United Nations Plaza and Ford Foundation headquarter amongst many. He also designed the new galleries for the Metropolitan Museum of Art and apparently has no ambition to retire. Roche’s architectural philosophy focuseses on creating a community for a modern society. He designed with the environment in mind, long before climate was on the political agenda.  The film transcends the world of architecture to an inspiring philosophical project we can all take part in.

More Human Than Human

More Human Than Human explores what it means to live in the age of intelligent machines. In this personal, playful and at times dramatic quest, the filmmaker finds out how much of his creativity and human values are at stake as he builds his own robot to replace himself as a filmmaker. More than just an exposé on the pros and cons of new technology, the filmmaker’s journey takes him to the world’s leading AI experts and robot pioneers confronting them with existential questions such as: will AI, infinitely smarter, interconnected and possibly self-aware, render humanity obsolete?

The Man Who Stole Banksy

In 2007, world-renowned street artist Banksy traveled to Palestine and painted a number of politically charged works on walls and buildings all over the city. Some viewed this as a nuisance; others hailed the work as high art; and still more saw a business opportunity. Specifically, a bodybuilder and local taxi driver known as Walid the Beast came up with an entrepreneurial plan: cut out the entire cement wall containing the art and sell it off to the highest bidder.<br

Director Marco Proserpio’s The Man Who Stole Banksy is a provocative story about how works that are created illegally can be stolen, sold, and collected legally. As viewers follow Banksy’s work, they discover a secret art market of stolen walls from around the world. It’s a stylish examination of public space, appropriation, and the commodification of street art and of what happens when Middle East politics meet the Western art market. </br
